May is National Wildfire Awareness Month
Be Prepared for a Wildfire
- Create a fire-resistant zone that is free of leaves, debris, or flammable materials at least 30 feet from your home.
- Find an outdoor water source with a hose that can reach any area of your property.
- Learn your evacuation routes, practice with household members and pets, and identify where you will go.
- Have enough supplies for your household, including a first aid kit, in your go bag or car trunk.
- Follow instructions from your local authorities. They will provide the latest recommendations and appropriate safety measures based on the specific threat to your community.
